I’m running out of adjectives because things just keep getting better for For Dear Mother’s Sake: The James Family Letters That Shaped Ann Petry. Thanks to our partner and fiscal agent the Community Foundation of Middlesex County we had a spectacular launch party today.
The highlight was state Rep. Matt Lesser’s delivery of a proclamation from the legislature acknowledging the project and praising the Foundation for its work. My jaw dropped. The rest of the reception was pretty much a blur.
Fortunately I had already greeted the board members from the Old Saybrook Historical Society, including former Police Chief Ed Mosca, one of the few people who remember me when I was a little kid. Thank you all for making the trek up Route 9 through traffic and multiple accidents!
Multiple photos will follow, most probably including one of me, jaw headed due south, after Matt announced the proclamation. Meantime, here’s a repeat from when we signed the contract.
Repeated thanks to all.
